Clackamas County, Oregon, is where you’ll find the majority of Wilsonville. Northern parts of the city extend into Washington County. Established as Boones Landing due to the presence of the Boones Ferry across the Willamette River, the name was changed to Wilsonville in 1880.

In 1969, when it was formed, the city was home to around 1,000 people. The population increased from the 2000 count of 13,991 to the 2010 count of 19,509. At the time of the 2000 census, slightly more than 90% of the population was white, with Hispanics making up the biggest minority.

Charbonneau, on the south bank of the river, and Villebois, on the western outskirts, are two of the planned communities that make up the city, both of which are part of the Portland metropolitan region. Ready to get started on your roof? Click the button to call us now —>>> Call Now
